I can elaborate on why I chose this setup if you like, but I think it's
actually not really related to the problem here.

I agree that the long cleanup time is directly related to the vast
number of files. So, is this a "limitation" of subversion (it's not
really a limitation, because it still can handle the repository - but it
takes it time).

Also, does someone know why the cleanup takes up so much memory?
